HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY
Love is in the air here at Cub Creek Science Camp! We're that much closer to campers arriving and we love our campers! We can't wait to hear camp songs and the excited chatter of campers getting ready to see any number of our animals!
We are seeing registrations ramp up now that we started hitting camp fairs. If you thought about registering your child, do so now! We've closed several cabins and are looking at closing sessions very soon!

ANIMAL CAMP JAMAICA
Did you know ACJ campers go snorkeling every morning? Or that they go out into the community every afternoon? Animal Camp Jamaica campers not only get plenty of ocean time but they also visit local Jamaican attractions. From gorgeous local gardens to Dolphin Cove, these campers have the greatest time!
FEBRUARY STAFF OF THE MONTH
Lauren Ruiz is our February's employye of the month. Lauren is a relatively local girl native to Missouri and started at Cub Creek last year as a counselor. She's currently one of our fantastic Animal Interns. She says all of the animals here are her favorite until they poo/pee on her then they move down to the bottom of the list! Black Socks is her favorite camp song and we often hear her humming when she's doing roungs. She wants to be a Marine Science Educator someday. For now, we'll keep her as long as we can!
Cub Creek is hiring for the 2017 summer! We still have several open positions and would love to talk to YOU. You can call the office for more information (573-458-2125) or apply online.

NEWS FROM THE ANIMAL AREA
All of the animal care team and animals are really enjoying this early spring weather! We know that Phil the groundhog predicted more winter but Nigel things otherwise.
We have a new face here in the animal area. Our lemur Blueberry in Lemur Landing in the dining hall had a new baby!
The baby is still too young for us to know its gender but when we do, we will begin thinking of a cute name for the little guy or girl. The baby is around two weeks old now and has opened its eyes. It will start riding its mothers back and trying new foods in a few short weeks.
With our creepy crawlies, we are also seeing new babies. A few weeks back, our axolotls, a type of salamander, surprised us by laying eggs. Some of them have now hatched and are getting bigger everyday. Axolotls are interesting amphibians in that they spend their entire life in their juvenile form, unlike other salamanders that grow into an adult and terrestrial stage. In the picture below look for two black dots as its eyes to see one of our babies!
